St. Regis Maldives Under Construction

WOW was commissioned to design a unique resort in the Maldives. It was quickly apparent that building on an island in an atoll in the Indian Ocean was neither eco friendly nor sustainable. Were it not for the fabulous natural beauty and rich natural history, it would be pointless. Therefore, we decided to conceptualize an Eco Awareness resort, where the guest would arrive and enjoy the beauty and wonders of the place, but leave refreshed, enlightened and inspired by theses pockets of paradise on our planet. Together with the owners we selected a luxury resort brand that we felt would do justice to the vision, and at the same time would provide the necessary customer draw for a low key count resort, where limited numbers would provide lower impact to the island. St Regis is scheduled to be the brand operating what we hope will be a model resort concept for ...

Raffles Park

Raffles Park in Bangalore is designed to be a showcase, built by a Singaporean developer to highlight how green and high-quality developments can be achieved in India. The emphasis is on creating a lush central park around which are clustered villas designed as modern tropical homes. Each villa is designed with traditional Vastu principles around a central courtyard, and integrates gardens and vistas at every level of the near and far green. In a deviation from traditional Vastu-dictated home space planning in India, expansive long-span spaces occur at every level and interconnect levels to expand the spatial experience within a small footprint for a truly open and well-ventilated home.

The space planning was tempered by Vashtu and contemporary lifestyle considerations.  Each space in the house is designed to tease out the ...

Intercontinental Hotel Lake Taihu

WOW has been appointed to design a 300 room lakeside hotel as part of the Suzhou Tourism Bureau’s efforts to introduce high-quality hospitality products to enliven the northwestern shore of Lake Taihu. Thus, a culturally referential and yet progressive design language is used to express a building typology that maximizes lake views and integrates architecture and landscape into a harmonious experience. The building mass blends into the surrounding hills, and introduces a variety of courtyards and terraces that pays homage to Suzhou’s artistic and literary culture.

ARAGREENS | INNOVATIVE GREEN DESIGN

Designed by WOW Dlab to be a multigenerational residential community, the AraGreens located in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia was developed from a concept inspired from bio-mimicry and environmental technology for green living.  The project will qualify for the Building and Construction Authority (BCI) Platinum Green Mark, a reflection of the developer’s desire to be a socially and environmentally responsible leader of sustainable developments. Based on a rhizhomic system of growth whereby in reproduction, horizontal underground stems strike new roots down into the soil and shoot new stems up to the surface, the architecture will enable three generations to live in harmony both socially and environmentally. The project is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in 2015.         Here are some of the notable sustainable features throughout the development.   INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITIES Optimizing & Maximizing Unobstructed Tower View Each residential tower is strategically oriented on site to ...
